[laughter] i'm okay with the no rain. >> we'll be there no doubt about it. hang in there today. hang in there through the evening hours tonight and then as we get into tomorrow finally we'll dry
>> okay, so the rain is ending tomorrow morning? >> the rain -- most of the rain will be gone by tomorrow morning, yes. >> okaying. >> with the exception being for those who live west over the mountains. >> as long as our zip trip is dry so it's all good. >> i'm going to stage my sunglasses. >> ellicott city. >> have to find them. have and used them in a week. >> get ready ellicott city. we should have pretty good weather for zip trip friday. first one summer 2017. most of the region waking up to temperatures in the 50's. i see one lone 60 on there. that's fredericksburg. you're the lucky one. fortunately fredericksburg you're also dealing with rain at this hour as are most of us and especially those living off to the west of town. coming up through the panhandle of west virginia towards the panhandle of maryland heavy embedded showers maybe a rumble of thunder in there as well. coming from the south we have this band of showers that's just now starting to move into northern portions of virginia and that will make it here to d.c. in about an hour or so. once that gets past, we have a little bit of a break as we move down through southern virginia into north
well. we may get some peeks of sunshine. however we got another little system that's going to spin up as we head towards the afternoon hours so the more sun we get the more inbe stability will build and the better chance that we see some scattered thunderstorms develop later on this afternoon as well. here we are at 8:00 a.m. that's kind of the last of the bands moving its way out of here. as we move into the late morning early afternoon again we could peek into a little bit of sunshine but then we'll start popping showers 'cause not the most stable environment out there later on today t even as late at 8 o'clock a couple of these storms could be on the stronger side and then once we get past that that point we'll start clearing it out overnight and should set us up for a pretty good friday. can't rule out an isolated shower but considering where we've been, it will be a much better friday afternoon for us. severe weather risk, again it's what known as a triple point coming through today with those we usually have the marginal risk of severe weather. what we mean by that is we have some gusty winds, maybe a little bit of hail but not the best day for hail. some heavy downpours upon can't even rule out an isolated quick brief tornado with some
coming through later today. 74 degrees your high today. morning clouds and showers, peaks of sunshine in the afternoon followed by maybe some thunderstorms later this evening. 59 degrees, showers ending early and we'll clear it out late. quick look at the fox5 accuweather 7-day forecast, yes, there's a chance of storms each day this holiday weekend. however, none of those days are washout and temperatures make it into the 80's. all right, that's weather. erin is back with traffic. looking good in that dresser ring. >> mike thank you. raining outside. not a great start to the thursday morning. outer loop on the ramp to 395 northbound from an earlier issue a disabled tractor-trailer. use caution. traffic moving very slowly to the left. as we forward things along right now we also have a crash that you need to be aware of blocking the shoulder. it's moved over to the right shoulder. this is the inner loop at little river turnpike. and you can see how rainy it is out there. a lot of road spray. watch for the potential to hydroplane. use caution even though volume is still light on the inner loop and outer loop folks taking it very slow and that's my best advice. have patience and be prepared to
